The best thing about Barcelona is the wide variety of restaurants and cafe’s that you can find on every street. The people in Barcelona live outside and with the beautiful weather they normally have you can’t really blame them. One of my favorite things to do when in Barcelona is to sit outside enjoying the street life of Barcelona and have a glass of wine and some delicious food. That’s actually what we did on the second night in Barcelona. We had dinner at a restaurant called Farga which can be found in the northern area of the city center. The restaurant is located at the street called Gran via de les corts and has mostly outdoor seating. It’s located in an area were you can find many r...Read More

The first day we were in Barcelona we arrived at 22.00 so we only had time to wonder around the neighborhood a bit, but we never had the chance to really explore the city. The second day we made sure we could enjoy the whole day and started in the early morning! Since the apartment we stayed in was very close to the city center we were there within 15 minutes of walking and standing on the famous Plaza Catalunya. From here you can go south all the way past the famous street of La Rambla and to the harbour area.At around 13.00 one gets hungry and we decided it was time for lunch. We were in the area called El Gotico which consists of many small little streets full of shops and little restau...Read More

Eixample delightI have been going to Barcelona quiet a few times and it’s simply one of my favorite cities in Europe. Barcelona simply has everything that you want from a city. It has a wonderful shopping opportunities, cafe’s, bars, cultural activities and of course the beach with a beautiful climate. For these reasons i simply fell in love with this city.When going to Barcelona I advise to stay in the city center. You simply enjoy the city more then staying far and when you have to travel half an hour to get to the hotel. Also the city center offers many hotels and apartments which varies form cheap to very expensive. This time around we around with four people and decided to...Read More

Barcelona ZooGoing to the Zoo is always a lovely experience and as a huge animal lover I always think it’s a good way to spend an afternoon visiting a zoo. When we were in Barcelona we went to the Barcelona Zoo which is located not that far from the city center. It’s really an excellent way to spend the day and easy to reach. The Barcelona Zoo is near the City park and close to the yellow line metro stop Villa Olympica. The yellow line runs from Passeig de Gracia and it takes around ten minutes to get here.The zoo isn’t a very large zoo but still offers quiet a low. The zoo is divided into three parts namely primates, water animals and large quadrupeds and birds. As for wildlif...Read More

During our weekend in Barcelona we stayed at the hotel in the city center. When we go for a weekend away i always make sure we stay in the city center. I always think it’s a waste of spending time on travelling when you are only a few days away. I want to see and enjoy as much as I can of a city and for that reason we stay in the center of the city.Barcelona is a beautiful city with much to offer. It has a great nightlife, shopping and cultural oppurtinities and even a beach. I love the culture and the people. They are much more outdoor people enjoying food and even a cup of coffee while sitting outside.When we arrived at this hotel we just got of the metro and was only a few s...Read More
